The Colombian seeks passage to the fourth round of the US Open tennis. 

Daniel Galán seeks to make history in Colombian tennis this Friday. He faces the Spanish Alejandro Davidovich in search of an unprecedented passage to the fourth round of the US Open.

Galán qualified for the third round of the US Open that no Colombian tennis player had achieved in almost three decades. In an exciting comeback,
Galán, number 94 in the ATP and coming from the qualifier, beat the Australian Jordan Thompson (102nd) 6-3, 2-6, 3-6, 6-4 and 6-3 after three hours and 51 minutes.

Before Galán, Monday's executioner of candidate Stefanos Tsitsipas, no Colombian had reached this instance of the US Open since Mauricio Hadad in 1995.
